I am a first year NACS student affiliated with the kinesiology department. My current graduate work involves the use of the tower of hanoi to examine human motor performance, learning, and mental workload. We also implement the use of novel virtual environments in order to examine the way that technology use changes human motor performance and mental workload. I also work in collaboration with the VA war related illness and injury team examining diagnostic methods for mTBI and PTSD for the advancement of treatment and rehabilitation.
